The Ficus carica is a deciduous, low-branching tree with an equal spread of 15 to 30 feet. Believed to be indigenous to Western Asia, this popular fruit-bearing tree has been widely distributed throughout mild-temperate climates and is known for its flowerless attribute. Though the fig is commonly thought to be the fruit of the Ficus carica, the fig is actually the flower of the fig tree. The fig is considered a multiple fruit, as it is formed from a cluster of flowers growing on a catkin. The multiple small flowers arranged on the fruit’s inner surface remain unseen unless the fig is cut open. The tree’s skin-irritating, evergreen leaves are 4 to 10 inches wide with three to five lobes; they generously clothe the tree’s thick, knobby, gray branches. The milky sap of the unripe fruits and of any part of the tree is severely irritating to the skin.

The fig has numerous uses as a food source. It can be eaten fresh or dried and can be prepared in pies, puddings, cakes, and breads. Low-grade figs are often converted into alcohol, and alcoholic extract of dried figs are often used as a flavoring for liqueurs and tobacco.

Ficin:


A protease that is obtained from the latex of fig trees and is used as an anthelmintic and protein digestive. Similar to that of papain.

I-, MN- and Pr1/Pr2-activity of human erythrocyte glycoprotein fractions obtained by ficin treatment.

Ficin activity is related to the time required to clot. The enzymatic activity is compared to an enzyme standard. Bonding anticoagulant, anti-inflammatory & anti-necrotic.
